Pjanic has performed to distinction for Roma this season, which has led to frequent speculation about his future in the Italian capital. The apparent interest in the Bosnian is reported to have led Roma to value Pjanic at a sizeable €55 million.

Reports about the midfielder’s future have intensified in recent days after he was spotted in the stands at the Parc des Princes as PSG beat Marseille on Sunday, but Garcia claims Pjanic was merely watching the game alongside teammate Mehdi Benatia.

The Roma boss also insists that an links to PSG are pure fantasy, and that the most likely outcome for the 23-year-old is that he will extend his stay at the Stadio Olimpico.

“Miralem was with Benatia, who both know France, and it is good to see a match at a high level, a classic,” Garcia told reporters at the Federal Technical Center of Coverciano.

“Both were in Paris, it was a good idea. PSG? The next news for Pjanic will be that his contract with Roma will be extended for longer.”

Along with PSG, Manchester United have also been credited with interest in Pjanic with David Moyes expected to bring further midfield reinforcements to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.
